UIA plans to resume regular flights between New York and Kyiv Borsypil on Dec. 9. However, the airline plans to use narrow body Boeing 737-900ER jets on the route, necessitating refueling stops midway, in Keflavik, Iceland. This stop is expected to add two hours to what previously was a 9 to 10-hour flight. Flights will be twice a week with a 737, a plane that seats 177. Previously, UIA used on the New York route long haul 767s and 777s, jets with twice the seating capacity.
